cantina-main image

Cantina is a long rotation ryegrass with excellent persistence

  • High-yielding plants were selected from a 15-year-old perennial ryegrass¬†pasture in South Gippsland
  • Background breeding contains New Zealand and Spanish germplasm for higher winter production
  • Where summer rainfall occurs, hybrid breeding also enables improved summer growth
  • New persistent, late heading perennial ryegarass.


Handy Tip: Cantina contains wild type endophyte. Use as a component in a pasture blend. Avoid grazing too low, when seed heads are present or when stressed in autumn. Ensure hay is baled at correct moisture content.
